Hello everybody! 😀
Have you ever bought a dress and used it for one night only? I’m pretty sure we all have our old prom dresses in the back of our closets, not being used for anything except dust-collecting. Well, today, I’m going to tackle a problem of that sort and re-style a bridesmaid dress to fit a summer date-night look!
The dress that I’m going to be using as an example is from Weddington Way. They have such beautiful designes and all the colours you could possibly imagine! This one is a lovely shade of blue, with a V-neck. I love the length, too, and the fact that it has an A-line skirt makes it even more appealing to me.
The way I’d style this dress is quite ‘simple’, but I do think it looks good. 🙂
For the shoes, I’d go for a baby pink heeled sandal. I really like this one from ASOS.
It’s an old rule that the clutch should always match the shoes, so I found this beautiful ‘Missguided’ nude clutch – I just love the size for the look that I envisioned. Anything big and bulky just wouldn’t go with this look, as it’s quite gentle and ‘soft’.
Also, in all honesty, I think that I’d most definitely bring a cardigan with me, just in case it gets colder. What can I say, I like to be prepared!
HAIR & JEWELRY
I really love spanish buns (low buns) and what I would do is curl my hair or use those ‘hair worms’ and create some loose, almost beachy waves. (adding sea salt spray is only a bonus) Then, I’d make the bun and pull out the front two pieces, as I find it really frames the face well.
I wouldn’t go crazy on the jewelry – this simple V necklace and these dangling earrings and voila!
On the eyes, I’d just make them pop by doing a neutral (almost pink-ish) smokey eye – some baby pink (W.O.S. – Naked Basics) on the lid, a lighter brown (Naked 2 – NB) in the crease as a blending shade and smoking out the upper right corner of the eye with a dark brown (Coffee Bean – Too Faced Matte Eye) or black (NB).
I quite like lining my upper lash line and maybe winging it out too, as it ties the whole look together. 🙂 Also, mascara is a must for me – without it my lashes feel naked.
I’d add a bit of soft rosy blusher, too, for that naturally blushed look.
Finally, lips! I’d use a bright lip, give it a little pop of colour, to make it stand out. I quite like the Maybelline Color Sensational – Vivid in the shade Vivid Rose – it’s a very pretty not-as-intense-as-usual fuchsia colour. It adds life to the entire look and this colour fits so well with the colour of the dress!
For this part, I just picked a nude colour. I really like the Essie – Wrap Me Up and OPI – Otherwise Engaged. I really like the way they fit in the whole outfit. 🙂
And that’s the outfit! 🙂
